Craft Kits for Kids

Craft kits for kids are a great source of fun and entertainment, even when you're traveling.

There are many holidays throughout the year when we choose to go on vacation. Christmas is probably the most popular holiday for families coming together.

When our family gets together the anticipation and excitement builds as the kids think about the fun they will have with their cousins!

That said there are many hours in the day.

When we are at home the kids get plenty of down time.

Have you noticed that when you are on vacation you're expected to entertain your kids all day?

Art or Craft Activities are a great way to entertain your kids during the quiet times, maybe late in the afternoon, before or after dinner.

If you're keeping the kids occupied indoors, why not incorporate craft kits into the season.  For example, many crafts can create gifts, ornaments or greeting cards.

Your kids may even get excited about creating a surprise for someone!

  • Finger paints, coloring book
  • Stringing beads for jewelry or popcorn for garlands
  • Macrame, lace work, knotted bracelets
  • Weaving, knitting, crocheting
  • Scrap booking is great for creating travel journals
  • Making greeting cards
  • Modeling clay - make ornaments for the occasion
  • Painting by numbers
  • Cross stitching
  • Model cars and planes
  • Origami or decoupage

A great way to really create some excitement is to prepare some activities that embrace the holiday itself, such as ornaments, garlands, greeting cards, and so on for Christmas, or whatever occasion has you traveling.

You may have supplies on hand already for making kits for the kids. However there are plenty of sites on the web offering craft kits if you need new materials.

We hope your kids have fun with craft activities on your next vacation, we know ours certainly love it.

But if you're not going away, don't let that stop your kids having fun. Craft activity kits are great fun around their own home too. 

Why not make some memories with the kids and show them some neat crafts you know all about. 

And if there are old hippies in your family, enlist them so they can teach everyone to do macrame or tie-dying.
